The Compton Self-Help Center assists self-represented litigants with information on all civil matters and information specifically needed for their cause of action. Individuals are also scheduled to attend workshops regarding family law. In addition, staff review completed court forms for completeness and accuracy and describe filing and court processes to the litigants.
